I just made a killer pasta salad.
Cook up some cheese filled tortalinis. Be sure to simmer them gently so they don't blow apart.
Make the following dressing:
1/2c vinegar
1/8c vegie oil, or olive oil
a dash of salt
2 TBS of dried lemon balm - crushed
1 tsp paparika
a finely chopped clove of garlic.
Place all the ingreedients in a container with a tight lid, and shake until thoroughly mixed, store in the refridgerator.

Now, in a large glass bowl, mix together 1c of frozen peas, 2c of cooked, ready to eat shrimp, 2ea chopped green onions.
Drain the pasta, rinse with cold water until cooled, then add to the peas and shrimp. Pour on the dressing. Mix together and set in the fridge for at least 1 hour, but not more than 24 hours.

Wow! Sometimes I amaze myself. I hope you all like it.

That DOES sound like a good recipe. I prefer my pasta salads vinegary, not sugary.

one of the disadvantages of being single, sounds good, but sometimes seems like a lot of work for one to do that when you can open a can or heat a ready made dinner. But, I do make my own whole Wheat bread, sure easier to buy a loaf at the store. trade offs I guess

Sounds very good to cold, on a hot summer day, and nothing else, just the good salad.

Sounds great, cj.
I have two questions:
what kind of vinegar did you use?
what is lemon balm? (new one on me)

Just plain ol' white vinegar, however you can improvise. Lemon balm is just a lemon scented herb. It is a lot like basil. I grow my own and dry it, but use your imagination, any flavor of herb you like can be used.

I'll bet that is good :) Sounds something like our seafood salad - 1 pound each of 3 fish (walleye, salmon, crabmeat, whatever & shrimp) pound of shredded cheese, 2 pounds lettuce, 2 pounds pasta with a melted butter/mayonnaise slurry stirred in. leftovers make a mean burrito. :)
